Summertime Carbonara

When I think of summer dinners, I think of light and refreshing meals, nothing too heavy. Pasta has a bad reputation for being a heavy, greasy, food-baby causing carb but I for one, love it and as with anything else it’s all about the preparation (and the portion, of course). I’ve been curious about making carbonara ever since I saw it on the Food Network. I actually completely forgot about it until I read the June issue of Clean Eating Magazine and I came across their recipe for Summertime Carbonara.

I loved the radishes, it added a nice little crunch. The dish wasn’t heavy at all and yielded a generous portion (2cups per serving). I would definitely make this again but I still want to make REAL CARBONARA. Bring on the FOOD BABY!
